Traveling With Pets

Baja is a great place to travel with your pets. It’s an even better place to find a pet to take home with you, and it’s likely you’ll come across many people with black mutts named “Baja” or one of the local beaches because there are so many strays. 

When entering Mexico you will need to provide a current rabies vaccine record for each animal you are bringing with you. As with your vehicle registration, this record should show that the vaccine will be valid during the dates you list on your FMM for travel in Mexico. 

Upon return to the US – with your original pet, or with any you may pick up along the way – you will again be asked to show rabies vaccination records. 

Note that we have not been asked to show vaccine records when entering Mexico. But every US Customs and Border Patrol agent has asked for our paperwork upon returning to the US.
